Traces du Sacré

Yesterday we went to see the exhibition "Traces du Sacré", an exploration of the relations between art and spirituality in the 20th Century.

Many beautiful paintings were to be seen. I was moved in particular by paintings from the US psychedelic art movement. There were two major painting by Isaac Abrams : All Things are OneThing and Flying Leap.

And also by the famous Franz Marc painting :

I always like Marc's pictures. What a shame that he did so young in such a stupid thing as war.

Hope you are fine

I bet this was an outstanding exhibit, Helene. Sometimes these type of exhibits put my brain on overload with so many ideas that I cannot sleep!

Thanks for sharing those awesome examples . . .

Thanks for your comment Tally ! I'm fine and about to start German lessons from next monday, I'm thrilled !


KV, sorry again for clicking too fast. My brains tends to get bubbling too after visiting museums, but I kind of like it that way. It's better than to have one's brain overloaded with bad news in my view.

It's a pity that the "Flying Leap" pictures doesn't show properly ; it's so "beadable", it got me really excited !
